This is a very cool collective, representing the most important winegrowing regions of Portugal.  A group of friends and colleagues — 8 winemakers from 12 wineries — these are some of the brightest lights and rising stars in the Portuguese landscape.

Their mission statement sums it up pretty well:  “Wines & Winemakers is a group composed of some of the most innovative producers and winemakers who are at the forefront of modern technology, while staying true to the unique flavours, characteristics and personalities of each region, including Vinho Verde and Alvarinho, Douro and Port, Dão, Bairrada, Ribatejo, Palmela and Alentejo.”

The accolades tell a little more — this is a source for an eye-opening selection of wines that provide unbelievable character, quality, and enjoyment at remarkable prices.  There are too many wines, and too many outstanding reviews from the international press to list (hint: check out the website).
